Is this a case of seeing double?

This Curry Chicken Noodles stall called “Fu Hai Curry Chicken Noodles” located at Albert Food Centre Queen Street puts up a sign indicating “只此一家,别无分号” which means “no other branches”.

(Note: The stall at Albert Food Centre has closed, and they reopened at Tanjong Pagar Plaza Food Centre.)

Since it is called “Fu Hai” or “Hock Hai”, one would wonder about its relation to the other “Fu Hai”or Hock Hai (Hong Lim) Curry Chicken Noodle at Bedok Interchange Food Centre.

To add more to the possible complication, while the Michelin Guide Singapore previously announced that the Bedok curry chicken noodles was awarded the Bib Gourmand, its website and printed copy reflected that it was actually this Queen Street stall “Hock Hai Curry Chicken Bee Hoon Noodle”.

Ah…? (A misprint?)

I asked the auntie cooking up my bowl, and she said she wasn’t clear about it as well, and added a couple of customers also asked about its relation.

After some digging, I realised that there were three “Fu Hai” stalls in the past, at Old Airport Road Food Centre, Bedok Interchange Food Centre, and Albert Food Centre. The owner was also behind Chai Chee Minced Meat Noodle.

As to what happened subsequently, I would not know.

Fu Hai Curry Chicken Noodles at Tanjong Pagar Plaza serves up bowls priced from $5.

One of the reasons why the curry gravy is flavourful is that it is cooked using chicken stock, then added with Indian spices, curry powder, coconut milk and shrimps.

Only fresh chickens between 1.9 and 2kg are picked, poached then iced so that the chicken meat remains tender and succulent.

My favourite component were the soft potatoes, followed by the tau pok which soaked up the greasy gravy.

As for the chicken, it happened to be quite bland-tasting and I wished there was more natural flavours locked within.

I thought that the gravy was on the lighter side, and not as intense and full-flavoured as some of the others.

However, if you prefer something not too heavy, this could be a suitable choice.
